Chicago, IL, United States, 2010/10/20 - DMG / Mori Seiki USA exhibited the DMU 50 eco CNC 5-axis control machining center for the first time in September’s tremendously successful International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS).
The DMU 50 eco machine is designed to be the ideal 5-axis machine tool for low-cost, high-quality parts machining with a shortened delivery time. This next-generation standard machine reduces cost by also reducing fixturing and setup time while improving accuracy.
Offering excellent cost performance, the DMU 50 eco is especially advantageous for users who are introducing 5-axis machining to their manufacturing process for the first time. Equipped with the same configuration as the DMG DMU 50, the DMU 50 eco has all basic functions necessary for indexing 5-axis machining.
The DMU 50 eco uses an NC swivel rotary table with digital drives as standard. The NC swivel rotary table consists of the B-axis with the tilt angle from -5° to +110° and the C-axis that can rotate 360°. The B-axis, which can tilt another 20° from vertical position, allows back side milling and flexible indexing 5-axis machining by combining with the C-axis. Additional standard features include a maximum rotational speed of 8,000 min-1, 16 tool storage capacity and manual pulse handle. The machine also achieves both space saving and excellent operability by using a cantilevered table and wide-opening front doors, offering excellent accessibility to the table, thereby maximizing productivity per unit area.
Furthermore, the DMU 50 eco is an even greater value because it is now covered by DMG / Mori Seiki USA’s comprehensive customer service plan, including a 24-or-FREE guarantee for replacement parts and 2-year warranty. Other DMG models that are covered, effective September 1, 2010, by the 24-or-FREE guarantee and the 2-year warranty in the US include: DuraTurn eco, DuraVertical eco, CTX beta TC, DMU 60 monoblock and the DMU 50.
DMG / Mori Seiki USA’s attention to customer satisfactions goes beyond standard service by providing a value-added package for customer support. The extensive 2-year warranty applies to the aforementioned six DMG models, as well as all new Mori Seiki model purchases and includes all replacement parts for the first 2 years of machine tool ownership. The 2-year parts warranty is further enhanced by the 24-or-FREE guarantee on replacement parts. The guarantee promises that if any current model Mori Seiki or select model DMG machine is inoperable, the required part will be shipped within 24 hours or that part is free.
